Scientists believe life on earth may have begun in a place called ‘The Lost City’, deep beneath the mid Atlantic ocean. But now a United Nations agency has assigned this part of the seabed to Poland for mining exploration purposes. But scientists say that miners may inadvertently destroy precious species and geological structures in their quest for minerals. Sky’s Economics Editor Ed Conway reports.

Nauru - An Island Country in South Pacific is in news for the bad living conditions in its Refugee Detention centers. The Island is also known for its high rate of poverty and unemployment. Only a few decades ago, the island was listed among world's richest countries while it was a major phosphate exporter but as the resources exhausted, the national systems started to fail. At some point in its history, the country became a hub of money laundering in order to generate income. The transition of this country from rags to riches and back to rags again is something you might never have heard before. This video is narrated by Clundor.

I make short-doc/informative videos on the most interesting, weirdest and unusual stories of the world. So if you subscribe to my channel, it'll be a great help to me. -------------------------------------------------------------------- With only 21 square kilometers of land area - somewhat the size of LA international airport, Nauru is the smallest state in South Pacific and third smallest state in the world after Vatican City and Monaco. It's a home to some 11,000 people but long before humans discovered the island, local bird species used this island as their restroom and excreted their poop here for millions of years. Nauru was sitting on top of excrement gold and Germans were the first to find out. They started mining in this resource in 1906 under the name of "Pacific Phosphate Company". Following the world war 1, mining continued under the "British Phosphate Commission" when Nauru fell in the hands of Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. Things remained more or less the same until world war 2 and this is where the things started to change. Nauru got independence in 1968, bought the "British Phosphate Commission" and instead of fixing the damage done, it went on a full-on crazy mining streak under the locally owned "Nauru Phosphate Corporation". The people of Nauru mined A LOT, so much so that Nauru became one of the richest countries in mere a decade In 1975, the country earned the equivalent of $2.5 billion for a population of mere 7000 - more than enough to keep them satisfied for generations to come. Per capita income of Nauru reached second highest in the world, only after the oil-heaven Kuwait. Time took a turn, Island's phosphate resources depleted but countries expenditure remained the same, Nauru started borrowing money from other countries. One of the advisers convinced the president to invest in a London based musical pop band named Unit 4+2. The show closed only a few weeks after its debut costing Nauruans more than 7 million dollars in today's money. With no source of income to pay off its debts, international creditors seized Nauru's entire real estate portfolio together with its sole aircraft of Air Nauru. Nauru trust went bankrupt, virtually bankrupting entire nation. As a desperate attempt to generate income, Nauru published ads on the internet offering anyone with $20,000 the opportunity to open a bank on the island. Russian mafia saw an opportunity to seize and used Nauru’s liberal banking policies to launder over $70 billion from the former Soviet Union. At one point, Nauru used its position as a member of the United Nations to recognize independent countries like Kosovo and Abkhazia allegedly for money. Russia was reported to give Nauru US$50 million in humanitarian aid for this act. Nauru Government, however, claimed that these two things were not linked. In 2001, Nauru became a refugee detention center when the Australian government agreed to pay Nauru for temporarily housing refugees that were reaching Australia for Asylum. The Nauru camp shut down in 2008 and reopened again in 2012 with minor additions but the conditions did not improve. This time the Australian and Nauruan governments tried to keep things secret by limiting access to the Island and punishing those who would speak about the conditions inside the camps. An Iranian refugee, in 2016, lit himself on fire after he learned that he would be expected to live on the island for the next ten years.

The land of mystery and nature at the far south. There are some places that is rarely visited for being too isolated from the Metropolis. Like Languyan Tawi Tawi, located at the front door to Sabah Malaysia. The paradise for bird watchers. It is also home to the undisturbed virgin forests and mysterious " cannot be named" sites often visited by faith healers and traditional doctors for special wishes. 1 hour by speedboat from Bongao, this first class Municipality is fast developing and is geared to being a front door to the BIMP EAGA economic corridor. Fly with us as we inspect some of the projects in this Municipality that is often visited by cinema stars from Metro Manila. This is also home to the Gagandilans- the fierce warriors of the South - and yearly commemorates the bravery and celebrates anually the defense of homeland, for people, faith and land. DPWH ARMM Sec Don together with Tawi2 District Engineer Tony Kamlani, Assistant District Engineer Martin D. Maing, Assemblyman Romel Matba, Head of the Tawi-Tawi Civil Society Organization Arlene Sevilla, Quality Control Head Yahiya Abdulcalim and Languyan Municipal Engineer conducts inspection of DPWH ARMM Projects in Languyan, Tawi Tawi. The projects visited includes the Tawi-Tawi Circumferential Road that will connect the Languyan Municipality to the main town of Bongao so locals no longer need to wait for ships or ride costly speedboats to visit the island. The locals composing of 33, 494 living in 20 barangays can now have better access to hospitals, schools, market and the Poblacion. It will also pave way for easy transport of goods and will help develop commercial and business activities due to shorter travel time.

See Photos from our St. Elmo Visit Here: http://bit.ly/St-Elmo-CO St. Elmo was first named Forest City but was later changed because of a California town with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was at the time reading the novel "St. Elmo". At its peak in the 1890s, the town boasted a general store, telegraph office, town hall, Over 5 hotels, a handful of saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a schoolhouse. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo (Yes, it's the same South Park you are thinking of). There were 150 mines claimed within St. Elmo. The majority of the folks who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the biggest and most productive mine in the area. While in operation, the Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold. While the other local mines shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the "gold standard" was implemented. Which collapsed the price of silver overnight. As a result. The Railroad was closed and eventually abandoned in 1922. Even after the world gave up on this town and its mines, people continued to harvest ore. This was done by hand and miners would haul individual mining carts down the mountain. Once the mining industry closed completely, St. Elmo drastically declined. Miners searched elsewhere for gold, rather than silver. The business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. The current population is...three. Have more information about St. Elmo? Want to share?

It’s August 4th, 2017 and we’re on a mission to catch a pair of 80s era General Electric diesels in the Volunteer State of Tennessee. Lhoist North America, the Belgium-based mining company, owns and operates the Franklin Industrial Minerals limestone mine at Crab Orchard, TN. Franklin purchased the railroad from Norfolk Southern in 2002, when the Class I giant decided it was too costly to maintain the railroad between Rockwood and Crab Orchard. With multiple high and lengthy wooden trestles on the line, Norfolk Southern felt it was no longer worth owning the right of way. Since taking over, the mine has interchanged with Norfolk Southern at Rockwood, Tennessee. In 2006, Lhoist North America purchased the mine and continued to operate the former Tennessee Central Railroad with Franklin’s classic roster of EMD and GE products, which includes three elusive high hood GE B23-7s. To our knowledge, locomotives #4021 and #4023 are the only two remaining B23-7 high hood GE diesels in active train service in the year 2017. We were notified by railfan correspondents in the area that the railroad’s leased GMTX locomotive was out of service for its 90-day FRA inspection. During the first week of August, we ventured to northern Tennessee in hopes to record both high hoods in service on this unique stretch of railroad. It seemed we had a good opportunity to achieve our goal. Operating roughly three days per week, Lhoist utilized both high hood GEs throughout the first week of August - except for the date of our visit. On any other railroad, it would be a delight to see a former Rio Grande EMD GP35 car-body and a former Seaboard Coast Line B23-7 leading a freight train. However, on the former Tennessee Central - it’s a big letdown. Nonetheless, even though we ventured hundreds of miles to shoot the former Southern Railway High Hood Dash 7s, we still had a successful day chasing the two low-nose four axles.

One of the largest mining companies in Queensland, Australia, faced a major challenge. It needed to move a 3,000-ton dragline excavator from one coal mine to another, almost 100 kilometers away. ‘Walking’ there would have caused significant wear-and-tear on the machine, and not allowed the company to take advantage of scheduled rail network shutdowns required to cross critical infrastructure. Mammoet was able to provide a safe, effective solution to load, move and unload the dragline using Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs), ensuring the company did not lose out on productivity for this vital piece of mining equipment.

On the eve of World Bank/CAFTA hearing June 1, 2010 in DC, protestors call attention to Pacific Rim's suing El Salvador for not permitting mining gold that would poison half of their rivers with cyanide. Pacific Rim Mining Corp sought to open a large gold mine in the basin of El Salvador's largest river. The mine would use enormous amounts of water and tons of cyanide to process the ore. Public concerns about serious health, water and environmental issues arose after the first environmental study came out. Business press reports note that Pacific Rim halted its application for a final operating permit and ceased exploratory drilling in 2008. Meanwhile, in a triumph of democracy after decades of civil war, Salvadoran public concern translated into bipartisan political action. Both the conservative and then left-leaning governments undertook a national review of mining policy. But instead of continuing with the permitting process, Pacific Rim turned to CAFTA. It reincorporated a Cayman Islands subsidiary in Nevada, and used this new U.S. corporate entity to file a CAFTA case in December 2008. Pacific Rim is using CAFTA's controversial "investor -state" dispute resolution mechanism, which gives corporations the right to directly sue sovereign governments over environmental and other public interest policies they feel could undermine anticipated future profits. As a result, a World Bank tribunal is now empowered to decide whether Pacific Rim's expectation of profit trumps the right of the Salvadoran people to clean water, a sound environment and their democratic rights to determine what is in their national interest. video by Joe Friendly

From the DIRTIEST Cities, to nuclear wastelands ; these are the 10 MOST TOXIC Places On Earth. HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 10.La Oroya | Peru 9.Dhaka | Bangladesh 8. Norilsk | Russia The city has been branded as the most polluted city in Russia, where the snow is black, air tastes like sulfur and rivers run red. Life expectancy of employees in the smelter is 10 years below the Russian average. By some estimates, 1% of the world`s sulfur dioxide emission comes from the Norilsk nickel mines. Nearly 500 tons of copper and nickel as well as two million tons of sulfur dioxide are released into the air, annually. In 2016 the nearby Daldykan River turned red and the evidence pointed to privately owned wastewater pipes. The company accepted the responsibility while claiming that the coloring was of no danger to humans or wildlife. The smelting plant was in the process of being modernized and steps are being taken in order to reduce pollution. 7.Nevada Proving Grounds | Nevada Nevada Proving Grounds, now known as the Nevada Test Site or Nevada National Security Site is a U. S. Department of Energy reservation in Nye County, Nevada, 65 miles northwest from Las Vegas. The tests stopped in 1994 but the area is still extremely radioactive. Even though the radioactivity in the water is gradually declining, isotopes like plutonium and uranium could pose risks to workers or future settlers on the NNSS for tens of thousands of years. 6.Shanghai | China In December of 2013, Shanghai suffered a great spike in air pollution when the so called “2013 Eastern China Smog” occurred. The pollution levels were between 23 and 31 times the international standard. Nearly one-third of all government vehicles were pulled off the streets, construction work was halted, student`s outdoor activities were suspended, flights were cancelled or diverted. And even though air pollution in Shanghai is substantial by the world standard, it is still lower than other cities in China. Among the top 500 most polluted cities in the world, Chinese cities hold 179 spots. Thankfully, China is taking extremely serious measures to reduce pollution, closing coal factories, smelters and mills while switching over to more eco-friendly energy sources. 5.Northwest Arctic | Alaska Out of all the states in the union, Alaska produces the most toxins, outranking every other state by nearly 3 times. A closer look reveals that 91% of all of Alaska`s emissions come from one county, Northwest Arctic, most of it originating from one city – Kotzebue, population 7,500. So how is it possible that a tiny city, in the middle of nowhere Alaska is responsible for so much pollution? Well, just 90 miles from Kotzebue is Red Dog Mine, the largest source of zinc in the world. It was established in 1987 and each year, it releases 756 million pounds of toxins into the environment. 4.Asse II mine | Germany The Asse II mine opened between 1906, initially extracting potash (until 1925) and producing rock salt (1916-1964). But during the period between 1964 and 1995 the mine was used as a storage of radioactive waste. Now, this mine has been abandoned, with barrels of low-level and medium-level waste in a jumbled heap, some of it not even contained properly. There`s fears that the mine could fill with water and authorities are rushing to remove the waste with remotely operated vehicles since it is unsafe for workers to go in there. 3. | New Mexico The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant’s history is relatively short, it became operational in 1999. The facility is used to store transuranic waste left over from nuclear weapons research. Transuranic waste consists of clothing, tools, rags, residues, debris, soil and other items contaminated with radioactive elements, mostly plutonium. 2.Pacific Proving Grounds | Pacific Ocean Pacific Proving Grounds is the name given to a number of sites on the Marshall Islands and in the Pacific Ocean which were used for nuclear testing between 1946 and 1962. The US conducted 105 atmospheric and underwater nuclear tests in the Pacific. 1.Pripyat | Ukraine 50000 People used to live here... Now it's a ghost town. Radiation levels were so high that Nuclear Power stations in Sweden, Finland and Norway detected the anomaly. Twenty years later, the area is still uninhabitable. Except for the 197 people living in 11 villages scattered in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The average age is 63.

The Panama Canal Railway runs parallel to the Panama Canal, connecting the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. The train ride is a popular journey among tourists. Although much older than the famous canal, the Panama Rail Road never enjoyed the same recognition. The maiden voyage across the Isthumus of Panama in 1855 was the first train to run from ocean to ocean. Its significance was lost, however, just four decades later when the U.S. opened a route connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Today a train ride along the old line is a treat for tourists. Ever since it opened for commercial operations in 1914, the Panama Canal has been greatly beneficial to the economy in Central America. Eighty-two kilometers long, it meant goods could be shipped from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific coast much faster; a single journey could be reduced by a good three weeks. From 1914 until 1979 the canal was under the control of the United States. For two decades it was then jointly controlled by the US and Panama and in 1999 full control was given to Panama. This incredible feat of engineering is the pride and joy of its citizens and generates around 40% of the national income. But before the canal, the Panama railway was the first to affectively connect the Atlantic with the Pacific. Today, 77-kilometre route between Balboa harbor in Panama City and the port of Cristóbal on the Atlantic is used to transport both freight and passengers. The panorama cars offer tourists a unique view of the canal. On the small islands off the Caribbean coast, they can also visit the Kuna, an indigenous people with a unique way of life. The Casco Viejo, the historic quarter of Panama City, is also well-worth a stopover. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Presented by Allis-Chalmers (a US manufacturer of machinery), “Crawler Tractors in Action” takes its viewers on a detailed visual tour of earth-moving machines. The mid-1950s film kicks off with a look at horse-drawn scrapers and turn-of-the-century tractors, which helped kicked off a new era in road and building construction, as well as logging and mining operations. Flash forward to modern day and the viewer sees the current version of a crawler tractor at mark 02:00, which range from six tons to 21 tons. (A crawler tractor a continuous band of treads or track plates is driven by two or more wheels.) Starting at mark 02:30, the viewer sees the roll crawler tractors played in the construction of Illinois Tollway System in the 1950s and the construction of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado, as we see Secretary of the Air Force Donald Quarles at mark 05:22. The film also shows crawler tractors in action clearing debris from a Kansas City slum, working on conservation project the Ute Indian Reservation in Colorado, and at mark 07:18 constructing the St. Lawrence Seaway. As the film progresses, we see them at work clearing timber from forests, working in rail yards, and laying pipeline in the Pacific Northwest. Showing crawler tractors are suited for any environment, the viewer is shown a snowy field in Colorado at mark 12:20 as the machine clears snow from an irrigation ditch, and later moves trash along in a landfill. “These ingenious crawler tractors, basic to the earth-moving and construction ambitions of man have contributed to the realization of our dreams,” says the narrator in conclusion. Allis-Chalmers was a U.S. manufacturer of machinery for various industries. Its business lines included agricultural equipment, construction equipment, power generation and power transmission equipment, and machinery for use in industrial settings such as factories, flour mills, sawmills, textile mills, steel mills, refineries, mines, and ore mills. The first Allis-Chalmers Company was formed in 1901 as an amalgamation of the Edward P. Allis Company (steam engines and mill equipment), Fraser & Chalmers (mining and ore milling equipment), the Gates Iron Works (rock and cement milling equipment), and the industrial business line of the Dickson Manufacturing Company (engines and compressors). It was reorganized in 1912 as the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company. During the next 70 years its industrial machinery filled countless mills, mines, and factories around the world, and its brand gained fame among consumers mostly from its farm equipment business's orange tractors and silver combine harvesters. In the 1980s and 1990s a series of divestitures transformed the firm and eventually dissolved it. Its successors today are Allis-Chalmers Energy and AGCO.

Episode 2: Deep Frontiers is a brief history about knowledge of the deep sea and its resources. It highlights the ambiguity of this history, as depictions of the deep changed throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Today, this knowledge informs discussions about the commercialization of biological and geological resources, with the deep sea fast becoming a zone of international dispute, opening up a debate about sustainable practices at sea. What is Deep Sea Mining? is a five episode web series dedicated to the topic of deep sea mining, a new frontier of resource extraction at the bottom of the ocean, set to begin in the next few years. Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted. The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century. This web series addresses different issues related to this process, from resource politics to ocean governance by international bodies, prompting today’s shift towards a "blue economy" but also efforts to defend sustained ocean literacy when the deep ocean, its species, and resources remain largely unmapped and unstudied. Stefan Helmreich is Professor of Anthropology at MIT. He is the author of Alien Ocean: Anthropological Voyages in Microbial Seas, and, most recently, of Sounding the Limits of Life: Essays in the Anthropology of Biology and Beyond (Princeton University Press, 2016). His essays have appeared in Critical Inquiry, Representations, American Anthropologist, Cabinet, and The Wire. What is Deep Sea Mining? is developed in collaboration with Margarida Mendes, curator and activist from Lisbon, Portugal, and founding member of Oceano Livre environmental movement against deep sea mining.

Over the last century or so, our world has become a pretty darn big place. Between 1980 and 2014, the World Health Organization estimates global obesity doubled. In the US alone, more than two thirds of all adults are considered overweight, with one third considered obese (33%). That’s gotta be a world leader, right? Well, believe it or not, America doesn’t even break the top 10 countries on the obesity scale. It sits at 16th, between Egypt and Saudi Arabia. That’s right. There are at least fifteen countries with bigger waistlines than in the US. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 Help us translate our videos: https://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_queue?msg=10&tab=0 - Learn more why you might want to help: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6052538 Find more lists at: http://www.toptenz.net Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

It will be the largest coal mine in Australia and one of the biggest in the world - if it goes ahead. The proposed Carmichael mine will span more than 30 kilometres and produce 60 million tonnes of coal annually. Adani, the Indian company behind the mine, says it will create thousands of jobs, and it has the Australian Government's unwavering support. But its facing fierce opposition from critics who say the mine is commercially unviable and will wreak havoc on the environment. 101 East investigates whether the Adani mine will be a bonanza for Australia or a destructive disaster.

Silent. Public domain film slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_rail_transport Including systems with man or horse power, and tracks or guides made of stone or wood, the history of rail transport dates to as early as Greek times. Wagonways were relatively common in Europe (typically in mining) from about 1500 through 1800. Mechanised rail transport systems first appeared in England in the 1820s. These systems, which made use of the steam locomotive, were critical to the Industrial revolution and to the development of export economies across the world. They remained the primary form of land transport ever since for most of the world... ...Wagonways (or 'tramways') are thought to have developed in Germany in the 1550s to facilitate the transport of ore tubs to and from mines, utilising primitive wooden rails. Such an operation was illustrated in 1556 by Georgius Agricola... In the late 1760s, the Coalbrookdale Company began to fix plates of cast iron to the upper surface of the wooden rails. These (and earlier railways) had flanged wheels as on modern railways, but another system was introduced, in which unflanged wheels ran on L-shaped metal plates -- these became known as plateways. John Curr, a Sheffield colliery manager, invented this flanged rail, though the exact date of this is disputed. The plate rail was taken up by Benjamin Outram for wagonways serving his canals, manufacturing them at his Butterley ironworks. Meanwhile William Jessop, a civil engineer, had used a form of edge rail successfully for an extension to the Charnwood Forest Canal at Nanpantan, Loughborough, Leicestershire in 1789. Jessop became a partner in the Butterley Company in 1790. The flanged wheel eventually proved its superiority due to its performance on curves, and the composite iron/wood rail was replaced by all metal rail, with its vastly superior stiffness, durability, and safety. The introduction of the Bessemer process for making cheap steel led to the era of great expansion of railways that began in the late 1860s. Steel rails lasted several times longer than iron... The first working model of a steam rail locomotive was designed and constructed by John Fitch in the United States in 1794. The first full scale working railway steam locomotive was built in the United Kingdom in 1804 by Richard Trevithick, an English engineer born in Cornwall... On 21 February 1804 the world's first railway journey took place as Trevithick's unnamed steam locomotive hauled a train along the tramway of the Penydarren ironworks, near Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales... The first commercially successful steam locomotive was Matthew Murray's rack locomotive Salamanca built for the narrow gauge Middleton Railway in 1812... Railroads played a large role in the development of the United States from the industrial revolution in the North-east 1810-50 to the colonization of the West 1850-1890. The American railroad mania began with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1828 and flourished until the Panic of 1873 bankrupted many companies and temporarily ended growth. Although the South started early to build railways, it concentrated on short lines linking cotton regions to oceanic or river ports, and the absence of an interconnected network was a major handicap during the Civil War. The North and Midwest constructed networks that linked every city by 1860. In the heavily settled the Midwestern Corn Belt, over 80 percent of farms were within 5 miles of a railway... The system was largely built by 1910, but then trucks arrived to eat away the freight traffic, and automobiles (and later airplanes) to devour the passenger traffic. The use of diesel electric locomotives (after 1940) made for much more efficient operations that needed fewer workers on the road and in repair shops. Mileage Route mileage peaked at 254,000 in 1916 and fell to 140,000 in 2009. In 1830, there were about 75 miles (121 km) of railroad track, in short lines linked to coal and granite mines.). After this, railroad lines grew rapidly... By 1890 the national system was virtually complete with 164,000 miles (264,000 km)... ...in January 1888, Richmond, Virginia served as American proving grounds for electric railways as Frank Sprague built an electric streetcar system there. By the 1890s, electric power became practical and more widespread, allowing extensive underground railways. Large cities such as London, New York, and Paris built subway systems.

From countries with rapidly growing populations to countries gaining wealth quite rapidly, here are 11 fastest growing countries in the world. Subscribe to American Eye! 4. Panama While many Central American countries are beginning to move in the wrong direction, Panama is unique and home to the strategic canal. On one side of Panama is the Pacific Ocean and on the other side is the Caribbean sea. The US was the one who built the Panama Canal back in 1914 but no it’s the Panamanians who wreak the benefits of this modern wonder of engineering, which is certainly one of the reasons they’ve been able to grow. Panama gained full control of the canal thanks to a treaty in 1999. In 2016, The canal has expanded since then order to accommodate much larger ships. This should certainly be an important factor for the future of Panama. GDP has been continually increasing since 2012 however the wealth distribution here hasn’t been all that great with ¼ of the population living under the poverty line. Due to Panama’s tropical climate, they’ve been able to grow numerous crops which can be easily exported thanks to the expansion of their canal. The sky's the limit for panama if they can maintain social order 3. Ethiopia Believe it or not, but the country of Ethiopia has made drastic improvements in the past decade and both their GDP and population is on the rise. Ethiopia is home to one of the fastest growing economies in the world and their GDP growth percentage has been well above the world average. This measured in at first place reaching 8.3 percent in 2016, right above Uzbekistan. China has been willing to invest in Ethiopia’s infrastructure plan but everyone still kind of worried a drought might happen again which will set them back again. Despite the drought that set them back, they’ve been export quite a few products including coffee, sugar and cereals. Other industries appear as though they’ll surpass ethiopia’s agriculture such as leather manufacturing and gold mining. 2. India With an ever growing GDP per capita, India continues to surprise people how fast they are able to grow. It’s now the 2nd largest country by population. Home to one of the earliest civilizations in the Indus Valley, India has been a thriving nation full of resources and many foreign invaders knew this. However, in modern times, it’s taken india quite a while to adjust. Within the past few decades, they’ve become a global force to reckon with. Some major cities such as New Delhi and mumbai have over 20 million residents each. They seem to exponentially be growing in population and their population has risen by 200 million people since 2001. 1. Indonesia With 261 million people, indonesia is becoming a rapidly growing nation both economically and by population. From 1960 to the mid 1990’s the population here has doubled from 100 million to 200 million and they’ve continued to grow since. With naturally beautiful places such as Bali and various volcanoes, indonesia is home to many resources, even one of the biggest gold mines in the world. They now have the largest economy in southeast asia, and many believe they will continue to be a close 2nd to china in terms of economic growth in Asia. They replaced India as the 2nd fast growing G-20 economies.With their focused on a large variety of things such as agriculture, mining, manufacturing, and tourism, they don’t have all their eggs in one basket. Indonesia is a large manufacturer of many cheap goods, but unlike china, many people in the country will be the people who buy them. The rapid growth has taken its toll on the environment like many of these countries. The citarum river near the capital of Jakarta is labeled as one of the most polluted rivers in the world. Although the government appears to rather easily corruptible, it’s shown signs of progressing

I want to tell you about the Kearsarge Mining Company in the eastern sierra, that I have referred to in other videos, which should not be confused with the later settlement of Kearsarge, in the Owens Valley that we are headed towards today. In the Autumn of 1864, on a then unnamed mountain in the eastern sierra, five woodcutters discovered a vein of rich silver and gold ore. The men staked their claims to three Mines. They mined and shipped four tons of ore to a stamp mill in Nevada, receiving $900 a ton. The news of their mine leaked out, and several mine investors purchased the three main silver claims, forming the Kearsarge Mining Company. They established the mining camp known as Kearsarge or Kearsarge City below the mines located high up on the east slope of the eastern sierra at an elevation of 8,830 ft located just below the 12,621-foot-high granite Kearsarge Peak, and east of the Kearsarge Pass, 8 miles west of present-day town of Independence, California. These new owners had driven a 50-foot tunnel into the side of the mountain by August 1865, reaching $650+ per ton silver ore. After a winter of heavy snow, on the afternoon of March 1, 1866, an avalanche swept away most of the camp and some of the population, killing the wife of the mine foreman and injuring several men. The remaining camp population relocated to a safer site nearby, except the miners who continued to operate the mines and a mill that was constructed that summer. The Rex Montis mine, which became the principal gold source in the District, was worked on a large scale from 1875 to 1883. Kearsarge was mostly abandoned by 1888, the mill was removed and with little else remaining, but it was occupied on and off as attempts were later made to revive the mines with little success. The first written account of the later settlement called Kearsarge is June 23, 1866; the San Francisco paper “Alta California” mentioned Kearsarge as a stagecoach station and it seems to have evolved into the railroad station by 1883. The railroad station first named Independence for the nearby town and county seat, it soon became known as Citrus, and renamed Kearsarge Station in 1913. The name Kearsarge, popular back then, comes from the Union man-of-war USS Kearsarge, which had then recently sunk the Confederate ship, CSS Alabama, off the coast of France. A nearby settlement had been named Alabama Hills by Confederate sympathizers, so this "evened the score" after the naval battle. The Kearsarge station served the Carson and Colorado Railway, a narrow gauge railroad that ran from Mound House, Nevada, to Keeler, California. It served the community until it was closed in 1932. Aside from the station building there was a residence for the section boss and a bunkhouse for the workers. The typical Carson and Colorado station building stood until 1955 when it was demolished without much left to explore today to serve as reminder of what was. Looking out over the valley I can just imagine myself back in time and can hear the Slim Princess leaving Kearsarge station for its final departure.

There is a large hole in the ground high atop South Pass, Wyoming – a hole which has an important and most interesting story; and Jackson is fortunate to have someone intimately involved with that “hole”, who is able to tell the story behind it. The story of Wyoming’s Atlantic City iron ore mine, atop South Pass, is one that grew out of the consequences of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. As a result of an immediate need for steel, the U.S. government built a fully integrated steel plant at Provo, Utah where all the needed raw materials were located within the state or nearby. The steel plant was operated as a government facility until June, 1946 when it was sold to U.S. Steel Corporation. By the early 1950’s the quality and quantity of the iron ore deposits in Utah were diminishing and there was a need to discover and develop a new iron ore source to supply the plant. In June, 1953, U.S. Steel hired Dr. Paul Procter (head of the geology department, Missouri School of Mines) and Chuck Dahl, who was his field assistant, to search for a deposit of taconite iron formation in southern Wyoming. By August of that year they had worked westward to the south end of the Wind River Mountains. Long time Jackson resident, Chuck Dahl, will tell the story of the discovery that he was intimately involved with, and the subsequent development and demise of the Atlantic City iron ore mine at South Pass, Wyoming.

Toxic profits? - 101 East Rare earth minerals power many of today's products, including smart phones, computers and defence weapons. But the industry creates serious environmental waste. China has 95 per cent of the market but aroused international alarm recently by drastically cutting rare earth exports and using it as a global trade weapon. Prices rose 300 per cent last year with top consumers scrambling to find new sources. Lynas, an Australian mining company is set to fill the gap, building the world's largest rare earth refinery in Malaysia. But critics say it may cause an environmental disaster, similar to one from a defunct plant in the country 20 years earlier.

Short demonstration of a HK Porter, mine locomotive that runs off of compressed air. As you can see in the video the locomotive does not run very long with the air in the tank. Normally the locomotive would have a air hose hooked up to it suppling air all the time for operation. Locomotive has no brakes, and braking is accomplished by putting the locomotive into reverse and opening the throttle. This locomotive was built in 1906 and is 24" gauge. This was shot at the Western museum of mining near Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Yesterday, the gold mining town of Columbia, California celebrated their 162nd birthday and Modesto News .org was on hand to capture the day on film. Being so isolated in the foothills of California, the town of Columbia remained untouched by the turn of the century innovations that changed the world 100 years ago. During the late 1930's and early 1940's the residents of Columbia, California looked around and realized they had something quite special in their midst, and approached the State Of California in an effort to have their town designated as an official State Park. The state agreed that the town should be preserved and in 1945 Columbia, California joined the State Park System. The Columbia State Historic Park offers educational entertainment for the entire family year round. The town is still an active town with hundreds of residents who call the State Park their home, and run the many shops that line the main street. The Columbia State Historic Park is only an hour drive from Modesto, California and is a must for every child in Modesto to experience.

VPRO Backlight examines how you can penetrate into closed strongholds with the help of big data. What do these huge information streams reveal over a multinational like Shell? Ever since the disclosures about the snooping practices of the US and Dutch intelligence services, we are becoming more and more aware of the huge amount of digital data stored over us on the net, in the matrix. But not only data from citizens, but also information about governments and multinationals is being collected. This results in enormous files of many terabytes: big data. The good news is that much of this information is accessible to all of us. You only need to know how to search. In the episode 'Big data: The Shell investigation' VPRO Backlight investigates how these huge data sources make new ways of journalism possible. The case is energy giant Shell. Using a message about a billion debt that Shell would have left for the Iranian regime, VPRO backlight searches and falls into a sea of digital information. This way, we will fish some extraordinary remarkable information about the doings of this Dutch multinational in regard to Iran. The research focuses on Shell's activities in the years 2002 - 2010, the period when the international community decided on a commercial boycott against Iran because of its controversial nuclear program. VPRO Backlight shows how Royal Dutch Shell ended its rogue operations in Iran's "rogue state" and ended up in 2012 with a two billion dollars debt to the Iranian regime. VPRO Backlight also addresses its research on the intimate relationship between Shell and the Dutch government. What role does The Hague play when it comes to Shell's interests abroad and how far is this deliberate diplomacy going? Finally, VPRO backlight asks whether there is a "revolving door" between Shell and the Dutch government. With the use of an interactive research tool - the powerhouse - that was developed specifically for this purpose, Shell's and the government's relationships are being visualized. All this is being investigated with, as a source, the free available big data files about Shell and its trading partners. What is the power of digital resources and how far can big data enrich research journalism? Conversations in this regard bring VPRO Backlight with a number of colleagues including journalist and shell expert Marcel Metze, energy reporter at Dow Jones, Benoit Faucon, ship tracking expert, John van Schaik and Kenneth Cukier, data journalist at The Economist and author of the book ‘Big Data: a revolution that will transform how we live, work, and think’.

We recently took a trip over to Idaho and stayed in the alpine area of McCall, Idaho. In addition to skiing, snow showing, and x-country skiing, sleigh rides, and snow tubing, there are several hot springs in the area and many hotels and restaurants and at least three breweries. It reminded me a lot of little mountain towns in the NE of the US. It's actually been a low snow year so far so we were happy to find some ski-able terrain. And since its a small western town, everyone was friendly and welcoming. We stayed at the historic Hotel McCall which is where we start our walk. A heavy fog had settled in and obscures some of the views but lends its own special ambiance. Wikipedia: McCall is a resort town on the western edge of Valley County, Idaho, United States. Named after its founder, Tom McCall, it is situated on the southern shore of Payette Lake, near the center of the Payette National Forest. The population was 2,991 as of the 2010 census, up from 2,084 in 2000. Originally a logging community whose last sawmill closed in 1977, McCall is now an all-season tourist destination for outdoor recreation. The resort town is known for its Winter Carnival, extended winters, and one of the highest average snowfalls in the state Native Americans were the first inhabitants of the land in and around McCall. Three tribes, the Tukudika (a sub-band of the Shoshone known as the "Sheepeaters"), the Shoshone, and the Nez Perce inhabited the land primarily in the summer and migrated during the harsh winter months. In the early 19th century, the nomadic French Canadian fur trapper, François Payette, roamed the area alongside other mountain men including Jim Bridger, Peter Skene Ogden, and Jedediah Smith. During the 1860s, miners temporarily named the settlement "Lake City", but only alluvial gold was discovered, so the temporary establishment was abandoned as most mining activity moved fifty miles (80 km) north to the town of Warren. The settlement of McCall was established by Thomas and Louisa McCall circa 1889-91. For a cabin and assumed rights to the 160 acres (0.65 km2) of land, they traded a team of horses with Sam Dever, who held the squatter rights. Tom, his wife, four sons and a daughter lived in the cabin located on the shore of the lake, near present-day Hotel McCall. He established a school, hotel, saloon, and post office, and named himself postmaster. McCall purchased a sawmill from the Warren Dredging company and later sold it to the Hoff & Brown Lumber Company, which would become a major employer until its closure in 1977. During this time Anneas "Jews Harp Jack" Wyatte provided the first recreational sailboat rides around the lake for tourists and advertised in Boise's Idaho Statesman a "30-foot sailing yacht for the use of parties who might visit the lake". The Statesman referred to McCall as a "pleasure resort." Tourism continued in the early 20th century. In June 1902, the Boydstun Hotel in nearby Lardo opened as a "place to stay and camp on Payette Lake". In 1906, Charlie Nelson opened a tented camping area known as Sylvan Beach Resort along the west side of Payette Lake. In 1907, Lardo Inn opened for business. The arrival of the Oregon Short Line Railroad (a subsidiary of the Union Pacific Railroad) in 1914 secured McCall as a viable community and tourist destination. Three years later McCall was incorporated as a village. In the 1920s, the state land board started leasing homesites along the lake.

These are the top most most dangerous radiation hot spots in the world from nuclear weapons testing to power plant explosions! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Fort D’Aubervilliers Originally constructed as fortification to protect Paris from going under attack in 1846, it’s actually now one of the world's most radioactive places. It’s here where some of the first tests on radioactivity were conducted. Frederic and Irene Joliot-Curie both worked with salts of radium-226. People have noticed a large amount of cancer in the area especially in a school near the fort in 2002. High doses or radioactive contamination appeared to be the only plausible explanation and a study in 2006 confirmed the radioactivity. 5. McClure Radioactive Site A company looking to build some houses came across a startling discovery when surveying new land in Ontario Canada. The McClure site was contaminated with high amounts of radium from industrial use and a large amount of the soil as contaminated. They found out later that the plant in the area was put radioactive scrap metal in the ground for experimental purposes. The researchers had wanted to see if the radioactivity would somehow accelerate plant growth. The experiments were obviously unsuccessful but the area remains contaminated to this day. Some people have some crazy theories! 4. McGuire Air Force Base During the Cold War, America was quite eager to have the best nuclear arms of any country in the world. The McGuire Air Force Base was seriously contaminated from weapons grade plutonium in 1960. Located just south of Trenton, this was home to Launch Shelter 204 that stored nuclear, intercontinental ballistic missiles. An unexpected explosion happened in a helium that caused a fire in the nuclear tipped BOMARC missile. The fire burned for about 15 minutes and was extinguished with water. This resulted in radioactive material and water to flow throughout the air force base. Some pieces of debris were found a half mile from the explosion. It could have been much worse considering how close it is to populated areas. The contaminated area stretches an estimated 7 acres and it’s closed off with a barbed wire fence. So don’t even think about coming here! 3. Mailuu-Suu This place is one of the most polluted and radioactive sites in the world. Located in Kyrgyzstan, it’s radiation is derived from the large amount of Uranium ore deposits. Mining operations from 1946 to 1968 left this place severely damaged. They managed to mine nearly 10,000 tons of uranium ore for the Soviet nuclear program. A landslide that took place in 1958 released 6000 cubic meters of material from this mine, leaving radioactive particles all over the place. There’s more than 20000 times the amount of normal radiation at this location. When the mining operations ended, it left many people without jobs. It’s believed that many settlers of this region, put themselves in danger and attempt to sell of the metal to scrap metal dealers. 2.Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Chernobyl and Pripyat were both quickly evacuated after a horrific meltdown took place at the nuclear power plant Reactor number 4 on April 26, 1986. People fled this area so quickly that they left many of their belongings behind. As a result of the meltdown, no one has been allowed to live here due to the high amounts of radiation set off from the explosion. The toxic cloud of particles affected a large part of eastern europe and some material was even found as far away as Switzerland. This photo here depicts what's known as the elephant foot is the reminisce of the black lava firefighters found that oozed directed from the core of the power plant. This is basically molten radioactive lava and certainly not something you want to get close. Stand next to this thing for 300 hundred seconds and you’ll only have two days to live. Although nature has been able to flourish here, mankind certainly won’t be making their way back to this place any time soon. 1.Fukushima Power Plant ` A tsunami that struck the coast of Japan in 2011 after an earth and it’s the worst nuclear power plant disaster since Chernobyl by a longshot. The reactors automatically shut down and the tsunami destroyed the emergency cooling generators causing it to overheat. This lead to not one, not two, but three nuclear meltdowns and the releasing of radioactive material all over the area. It was given the Level 7 classification by the International Nuclear Event Scale. This has lead many people seriously concerned for their health in this area and the eventual number of cancer victims could be through the roof! Radiation hotspots like this one in kashiwa are completely closed from the public. Radioactivity is now found much more often through the entire Pacific ocean and has been causing mutations in plants and animals in many parts of the world.
